Texts 16-31 December

In a move towards greater organisation, I've decided to start listing my reading from the beginning of a month to an end rather than doing the whole ides-of-march shebang - and as per Cody's suggestion, I'm using +s to indicate the stuff that was actually good. My texts for late December were as follows:

Cecil Rajendra's "The Hour of Assassins

Madame de Lafayette's "La Princesse de Cleves"

Eli Solomon's "William Farquhar's Life in the Far East: A Chronology"
Jessica Williams's "50 Facts That Should Change the World"
Paul Arden's "Whatever You Think, Think the Opposite"
+Tom Wolfe's "The Painted Word"
+Daniel Ziv and Guy Sharett's "Bangkok Inside Out"

+Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie's "Lost Girls"
Ellis's "The Authority: Relentless"
+Jennifer Camper et al's "Juicy Mother: Celebration"
+Marjane Satrapi's "Embroideries" and "Chicken With Plums"
Alan Moore, Leah Moore and John Reppion's "Albion"

Down Syndrome Association's "Natural"

"Monty Python and the Holy Grail"

Incredibly graphic novel-heavy, cos the sales were one and comic book compendia have prices that require a 40 percent slash.

Seeya in January!
